Interview with Artist Brian Snõddy
Brian Snõddy is one of the original Magic artists and one of the most original in his work. He illustrated 127 Magic cards, from Alpha to Morningtide, with a few promos and special releases afterward. Some of his most prominent pieces include Carrion Feeder, Diamond Valley, Exploration, Helm of Obedience, and Recall.
Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Archon of Emeria
Thalia took lessons in rhetoric from a certain Eidolon, forgot her first striking ways, and later transformed into a 2/3 flying Archon. So goes the fictional story that could have culminated in the brand-new white three-drop from Zendikar Rising named Archon of Emeria. Death and Taxes players take an interest!
Interview with Artist Nicola (Leonard) Beeson
Nicola Beeson is responsible for a total of twenty stunning artworks in Magic. Most of them were released in Legends, Ice Age, and Homelands. A fifth of them are lands. Tolaria and Karplusan Forest are beautiful cards, yet outshone by the masterpieces that are Karakas and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale.
